Surf Rod advice needed. TIA
I'm looking to purchase a 9' or 10' surf rod to pair with my Penn 750 ssm.
I've never used a 10' rod, so I'm a little apprehensive about buying a rod that long. I live in Charleston, SC now and we don't really have sand bars here, so distance isn't a major factor. Mainly using the rod for big reds in the surf and small sharks.
My budget is around $60-$100.
Local places have a 9' Sea Striker Beach Runner 1-4oz (I found the exact model on-line for $42.99, and the store price is $67)
Star Aerial 9' MH 1-4 oz $70
Dicks had a Tsunami and Star Stellar rods, which were pretty nice but outside my price range.
Not sure I want to get an Ugly Stick, because those things are pretty darn heavy.
I would really appreciate any advice.

Look for a Daiwa Emcast or Tsunami Trophy series. They are in the 70-90 range and are nice rods for the money.
Come see me at our store below. I'm there:

I found the Tsunami Trophy Series on Amazon and they have a great deal going..
9' for $73.95
Just not sure which rod to get. Leaning towards the 10' because it's capable of throwing more weight 3-6, than the 9' (1-4)
Thoughts on choosing between the two? TIA
